The Junior Varsity team set the tone for the day by running to a perfect score of 15 points and winning the League Team Championship. They captured the first five places, a perfect score, and were paced by Alex Recancoj who led from wire to wire and captured the individual title of League Champion in a time of 18:02.8.

The League Title was a first for the boys varsity team who last won the TriValley League title in 2002.

The Final Race of the day also featured some fine front running by the Junior Varsity Girls. Isabela De La Cruz finished in the runner up position posting a time of 23:41.8, Angelica Herrera finished in 7th in 24:35.6, followed by Emma Orozco 8th in 24:47.8, Jasmine Vega 23rd in 26:38.7, Ebony Venegas 26th in 26:49, Emma Ortiz 34th in 27:51.9, Isabel De La Cruz 45th in 30:08.7, and Daisy Guerrero 54th in 33:02.3. In the team standings Fillmore Junior Varsity Girls finished in third place.

This concludes the regular season for the lower division Cross Country teams who had an excellent run this year with the Junior Varsity Boys capturing first place and the Junior Varsity Girls finishing in third place. Both Varsity Boys and Girls teams advanced to the Division 4 Southern Section CIF Prelims Meet on the Riverside Golf Course on November 10th. Here they will try to finish among the top teams and qualify to run in the Division 4 Southern Section CIF Finals on November 17th.
